Agricharts Market Commentary

1 hour ago
Soybean futures are currently 6 to 7 cents lower after settling 7 1/2 to 11 cents higher on Tuesday. Rain in the Corn Belt is getting the blame. Soybean open interest changed very little yesterday, but soybean meal saw a surge of new buying interest with OI up 5,617 contracts. Nearby soy meal was up $8.30/ton, with soy oil 15 points lower. China continues to pay a huge FOB premium for Brazilian beans that are exempt from the Chinese imposed 25% tariff. NASS reported that 84% of the US soybean crop was setting pods as of Sunday vs. the average of 72%. The crop was rated at 66% good/ex, with the Brugler500 Index dropping 1 point from last week to 369. Conditions improved last week in IN, OH and SD among other states, with ND down 20 points in the Brugler500 Index system and both NE and MO dropping 9. NOPA is expected to show July member crush of 161.74 mbu (survey average), which would be well above last July.
